Team Management

Review the scenario below and complete your SLP assignment:

Your virtual team has had its second meeting and laid out the requirements for this project, which consist of the following:

Decide how the instructions will be presented (completed; virtual instructions).
Capture all stakeholders (completed).
Capture the purpose (completed: to provide comprehensive training instruction on new software).
Capture all of the processes.
Document the process.
Write a flow diagram.
Write the process.
Test the process.
Modify as needed.
Final test of process.
Send to leadership for approval.
Release training instructions.
Work was parceled out to each individual, and it was agreed to provide status updates at weekly meetings. All members have the same status in the team—there is no team lead.

Management has informed the team that the release date has moved up two months due to updates on the company’s system architecture. You feel that this is a significant event and have requested an ad hoc meeting to discuss the impacts of this change. Your team has also been notified that a seventh team member will be added from a firm in Thailand that your company recently acquired. This team member (a software tester) has a general understanding of the English language and minimal ability to read and write in English. Team Member 5 has voiced concern that meeting times have impacted his work schedule and requested that the team take into consideration the time difference. Team Member 2 has missed the last two meetings and has not responded to any emails sent from the team.

What collaboration tools would best support your team’s efforts to establish connectedness? (Keep media richness in mind.) Critically evaluate your selection of tools.
How does your choice of collaboration tools support your efforts to establish connectedness?
What actions could you suggest for the team to establish task and interpersonal connection? (Be specific and incorporate the concepts for building task and interpersonal connectedness from this module’s materials.)
What possible barriers could be encountered and how could the team overcome those barriers?

Submit a 2- to 3-page paper (excluding Title and Reference List pages) with a minimum of two high-quality peer-reviewed scholarly sources found in the Trident Online Library. This paper should include the following:

APA formatted and double-spaced

The paper should have an Introduction, Main Body with Subsections, Conclusions, and a Reference List. Use APA (7th ed.) style for citations and references.

Be sure to take an analytical approach. The assignment is more about “why” and “what you did that resulted in that outcome” than providing mere description.
